Prevent frost on LED headlights

What do you coat the plastic lens with to help prevent frost adhering too much on plastic LED headlights? I have Megs window sealant but as I cant determine if its safe on plastic lens covers I have not used it and also not sure it would bond.

Assuming they are made of acrylic then you can use GTechniq G5

Whatever I have to hand, last time I just used bsd like the rest of the car, seems to do the job and easy apply when doing the rest of the car, I would imagine any wax, sealant would help

I have used Gtechniq G5 and it has been excellent. Water doesn't sit on any surface long enough to freeze in my experience.

Same here. Whatever I'm putting on the paintwork goes on the lights.
